Genmaicha is one of the most popular kinds of green tea around the world, and when blended with delicious matcha, it becomes a nourishing and delicious treat!
Prepared by Koga san, this premium organic genmaicha and matcha blend combines organic sencha leaves plucked during the first harvest and toasted organic rice kernels, sprinkled with sweet and healthy organic matcha MIYUKI.
After a quick and easy steeping (using boiling water), you will enjoy its nutty and toasty flavor. Matcha gives it a vibrant green color, a sweet taste and an enjoyable caffein boost, with no bitterness.
The rice kernels of MINAKO are toasted and puffed, but this genmaicha doesn’t include “popped” kernels, a sign of its premium quality. Its warm and toasted rice aroma will make your mouth water.
For coffee lovers, with its roasted flavor, genmaicha is also an excellent way to ease into the world of green tea.
